SoCo Tech Expo began with a great start. The local robotics program got setup with their 1,000 gallon underwater robot interactive display through the Navy Seaperch. People were allowed to test drive some of the robots that were built for underwater use for a more hands on experience.
The ATMEL team was hard at work opening up their versatile mobile training center for visitors. On display in the tour bus was a plethora of next-gen ATMEL tech including AVR and ARM based microcontrollers, automotive and crypto solutions, microprocessors, Internet of Things (IoT) products, wearable devices, 3D printers, touch sensors and XSense. People were allowed to walk around and get inspired by staff demos, talks, and tours of the mobiel lab. One of the main attractions was the 3D printer producing print outs in front of all the visitors.
There were even some treats being provided by local vendors. All in all, it was a great turn out and people seemed excited about all the future possibilites
